Students of Dharamsala Hospitalized for Diarrhoea

More than 90 students had to be hospitalized within a week this month due to heavy downpour that unleashed an epidemic of diarrhoea, infecting some 60 students, Tibetan officials said.

The onset of monsoon has always been a cause of anxiety for the 700-odd students of the Sherap Gatsel school, nestled in the foot of a hillside, not far from the lower Tibetan Children's Village (TCV) School.

"As of now all the students have recuperated well and are attending classes," a school director told the official Tibetan weekly Bodmi Rawang.

Although all tests through both Tibetan and modern systems of medicine have failed to identify the infection or its cause, the general assumption, he said, points to a nearby polluted stream and chemical fertilizers applied to the surrounding fields.

As a precaution, the school is now using the underground water, even for washing, and that for the time being vegetables have been cut off from the menu of the school mess.
